I obtained a copy of the CD some while ago from Richard Thompson,s beesweb site,following superb reviews in all of the music press. Now comes this set,a DVD and double CD, If your not aware of Richard Thompson then you really are missing one of the greatest singer/guitarists Britain has ever produced.This live set features Thompson,with just Judith Owen (vcls/keyboards) and
Debra Dobkin(percussion/vcls). The range of songs will leave you stunned in it's variation from medival music through standards
like Cry Me A River and Shenandoah,through music hall songs such as I Live In Trafalgar Square,to Gilbert & Sullivan's Mikado. Then onto rock n roll Drinkin'Wine to the Kinks See My Friends,to
Squeezes Tempted, not to mention Britney Spears Ooops I Did It Again, Yes, folk,rock,pop,jive,opera,madrigals,standards,I could go on and on,but this is without doubt one of the great releases
of the year by one of our greatest talents,and in concert.
It's quite a year for RT fans what with the awesome box set,and now this wonderful release.Do yourself a favour and treat
yourself,you will not be disappointed.FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY...and more.
